Rick is NOT "preserving" any films....they are simply being archived here/stored here.

I could of sworn that taking 1000's of reels of film out of dumpsters and giving them a good home was considered "preserving".

Actually, I think he's refering to Rick PRELINGER, who is indeed preserving a huge archive of original "educational" shorts (many of questionable educational value) and other ephemera. He is making some of it available in digital form through the Internet Archive, which of course is not technically "archiving" any of the stuff here. This stuff is mostly just somebody's low-grade rips of DVDs or the like. Internet Archive merely making it available for as long IA is around (as opposed to someplace like the Motion Picture Academy Archive, which stores and preserves original negatives and prints of movies, hopefully forever).
